3. The Rust Belt: Biden wins Michigan, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin.
4. Michigan and the Sunbelt: Biden carries Michigan, Arizona and North Carolina.
5. Florida +1: Biden carries Florida, getting him to 261 electoral votes. A win in any of the other battleground states would put him well past 270.


True, but with Biden leading in all those states, some by 5 or more points along with the closeness of Texas and Georgia, all States Trump won in 2016. That shows Trump is in deep doo doo to use an old G.H.W. Bush phrase.

Looking at state polling, if we went by who leads today, it's Biden 352, Trump 186. That total is with Trump still winning both Texas and Georgia. You're absolutely correct, Biden doesn't need either state. But the closeness of those two states speaks volumes to a numbers guy like me.
It's high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first instead of their political party. For way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.
